BMW and Nissan team up to add 120 DC Fast Chargers


BMW and Nissan have teamed up to add DC Fast charging at 120 locations across 19 states in an effort to support Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 customers and to promote increased adoption of electric vehicles nationwide. The DC Fast Chargers will be added in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Each of these new locations will offer a dual 50 kW DC Fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and CCS connectors, serving owners of both the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3, as well as all EV drivers in the U.S. whose vehicles are equipped with quick-charge ports. The 50 kW stations can charge the LEAF and i3 up to 80 percent in about 20-30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to recharge at a Level 2 (240V) charger.
